best ever cold frittata

Now normally I like my frittata hot but this is so good cold. Retro daddy says so and he’s a little bit critical of my food. It’s one of my ‘throw together with what I have in the fridge’ dishes but it really works. And it was soooo good to eat when we were delayed on our trip to Echuca. The kids had hot chips in the backseat as they weren’t interested in it but of course that just meant more for us.

bacon frittata

best ever cold frittata
Quick and easy and great for nights when you need a quick healthy dinner on the table. Sometimes I just serve it with buttered bread for the little ones and they're happy as anything!
Recipe type: Dinners
What you'll need
  • small red onion, diced
  • 3-5 rashers of bacon, sliced
  • 6-10 mushrooms, peeled and sliced
  • 10 eggs
  • 150mls cream
  • handful fresh parsley
  • ½ -1 cup grated cheese
  1. Saute onion in some olive oil in a frypan then add bacon to the pan. Fry until just golden and add mushrooms and saute a little longer until mushrooms are soft.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk eggs and cream together, add in bacon and mushroom mixture, fresh herbs, season with pepper.
  3. Pour into lined square/rectangle tin and top with grated cheese. Bake about 25-30 minutes in 200 degree oven or until golden on top.
  4. Eat hot or even better eat cold. So good. As you can see I made this in a foil tray lined with baking paper so we could take it away with us the next day. Just refrigerate if you're going to eat later. I also added a few frozen vegetables to fill it out like broccoli, carrot, cauliflower and you can do the same!

    • oh yes it would be perfect! I do it day before, wrap it up in foil or on a plate with foil or plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge. Most important thing, refrigerate!!!! you could freshen it up with some herbs on top of it or around as a garnish!
